Any interest in DNSCrypt?

Post#1 by starman3000 » 27 Jun 2012, 01:41

DNSCrypt is still fairly new from OpenDNS. But they only have Linux downloads for .rpm and .deb, neither of which I can extract using Porteus (v1.1).

Anybody got any ideas how... or IF-- I can utilize DNSCrypt? Or is there another alternative?

Convert your rpm to a porteus module like this:
Download the .rpm to temp (change code below to suit)

Code: Select all

mkdir -p /tmp/repack/{install,usr}
cd /tmp/repack
rpm2cpio /tmp/mydownloaded-file-0.5.1-2.2.i486.rpm | cpio -id
cat << EOD > install/slack-desc

To convert your deb file try: deb2xzm my-debianfile.deb

@brokenman: don't we have a service-menu with right-clicking? even for both .rpm and .deb?
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
